Entry-level 7-inch tablet should be inexpensive

Samsung has pulled the covers off the new Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. The tablet features a 7” display with a meager resolution of 1024 x 600. If you’re looking for the latest version of Android, you’ll have to look elsewhere – the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite comes preloaded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
In keeping with the tablet’s budget roots, the processor is a 1.2GHz dual core unit paired with 1GB of RAM. The tablet has only 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. And Samsung has seen fit to only include one camera on the tablet – a 2MP rear shooter.

Samsung promises up to eight hours of video playback per charge thanks to its 3600 mAh battery.
The tablet will ship globally in white or black colors, however, it is unclear when the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite will launch and how much it will cost.

Good thinking, Samsung. There are a lot of people out there who don't want the 6 year old touching a $400+ tablet. I'll bet they sell plenty of these.

Depends on the price. There are lots of companies competing in the bargain Android tablet space now.

Well as you said depends on the price. But even if Samsung was to sell these at 50% more than some other branded company's tablet with comparable features, most will probably go with the Samsung brand. A lot of it to do with brand recognition and because Samsung is heavily into Android devices that Samsung could easily take over the budget end of the Android market with a device priced a little higher.

I would even think of buying a budget Samsung device just to use as a remote controlling unit for my home devices, or even for the security cams (once I get those installed).

Problem is 8GB does not make sense for a kid if they will be playing games. I got my son a nexus 7.
